When installing via Architect, it generates an invalid
/etc/fstab (for me) with an invalid option, causing the FS to become mounted read-only and failing to boot.
- install architect
- try to boot
- boot to GRUB by spamming esc on boot
- press e
- scroll down to the line that says
ro (read-only) to
rw (read-write) to force a proper mount (temporary solution as fsck runs improperly here)
- press ctrl+x
- continue to boot
- log in as your user
- open terminal
- attempt to run
mount -o remount /
- see invalid option error
nano /etc/fstab, change the
/ mount options from
[...others] is a set of other options) to
- press ctrl+x then y+enter
- reboot, it works!
Not sure if this is a VM problem or a bug.
Check your grub configuration in
The last line
GRUB_ROO_FS_RO=true … or false
what is that error?
Configuring mount options in
/etc/fstab was part of the installation procedure.
You probably just missed a step or made a mistake.
There are many of them and one can get a bit lost …
I just did an install of XFCE using Architekt in a VM and it boots and works flawlessly.
nano /etc/fstab, change the / mount options from rw,[...others] ([...others] is a set of other options)
change from rw to rw? - so your change essentially did nothing and isn’t/wasn’t the cause
However, the here glanced over other options may have been …
I chose rw,noatime in the VM
On my real system I have rw,relatime
In /etc/default/grub the “read only” option is set in both.
Hmm… It happened once (even after reinstalls), then I replicated it exactly, and it’s not happening!
